Starr’s Mill senior busted for sexting
An 18-year-old Starr’s Mill High School senior was arrested Aug. 31 after showing several minors during school hours a photo of his genitalia taken on his cell phone.
Fayette County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Brent Rowan said deputies arrested 18-year-old Fayetteville resident and Starr’s Mill High senior Alec Marlow in connection with a public indecency case which occurred on Aug. 22.
Marlow was charged with one count of public indecency and three counts of electronically furnishing obscene materials to minors, Rowan said.
Rowan said the case involved Marlow electronically furnishing a picture of his genitalia on his cell phone to several minors at Starr’s Mill High School during school hours. Marlow was arrested after an investigation by the school administration and the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office School Resource Officer, Rowan said.
The sending of sexually explicit photos or text via a cell phone's texting feature is known as sexting.
